Newbie Corner: Pamela Bose

Today on Newbie Corner, we have the pretty Pamela Bose, a promising newbie author. Let us learn a little more about her through this pleasant chat.

Welcome to Newbie Corner Pamela Bose!



Tell us a little about yourself. How did you begin writing?

I’m Pamela Bose, born & brought up in Allahabad, UP, professionally a company secretary & have also completed my PG in finance and PGD in international business but passionately a writer and a cook. I was pursuing my professional career in finance in Mumbai but due to some personal issues I decided to quit my job, right now I’m at my hometown and completing my further education. I’m n extremely cheerful, witty, confident girl by nature but sometimes I’m very impulsive & short tempered as well. My life revolves around my parents & my pet dog. Whatever I’m or whatever I’ll ever become will be because of them. I don’t like to live with regrets, I believe whatever happens, happens for the good, it might be difficult to accept when it actually takes place but eventually it turns out to be good. I’m an adherent believer of humanism & karma. In future I aspire to own a stray dog association with all the amenities possible and a food joint. Having witnessed many up’s and down’s in life, my approach to life is quite fearless.

What is your favorite genre in writing?

As an artist, as a creator of fictional characters, I do not bind myself to any specific genre. All my write-ups till date, be it an article, poem, story is an outcome of my introspections; it’s like a mirror image of my brain and is of varied ilk. Mostly writers have a comfort zone for writing but I personally don’t like to bind my creativity in specifications, I want it to fly and touch the sky of imaginations. Sometimes I derive idea & characters from my surroundings or personal encounters and sometimes it’s purely imaginatory.
Like in my book “Evolving India from shadows”, I wrote about a youth’s perception towards India. In “Blank space” I wrote about a child and it’s inhibitions and aspirations to pursue his desired career. In “Kaavyashala” I wrote a poem on an orphan. In my upcoming books “Men-an anthology” I wrote about the struggle of a man and in “Colours-shades of life” I wrote a story on the bond of a sterile women and an orphan child”.
I’m soon coming up with my conceptualized and compiled book “SILENT WHISPERS-The unheard symphonies”. In that book I have written on various genres like human trafficking, price of success, fatal attraction and categories of men.

Who inspires you most and to whom would you dedicate your creative growth?

Frankly speaking no one in person inspired me to write; rather it’s my surroundings and my journey of life which actually inspires me on day-to-day basis. I believe no matter how expressive a person is, he needs a strong medium to articulate his thoughts, and for me that medium is writing. I pick my experiences from my life & then weave them into words.
I dedicate my creative growth only to my parents who always encouraged me to write more and more and never questioned my decision to take up writing seriously. 

What kind of a writer are you? Do you plot the entire novel/story or make it up as you write.

There are so many types of writers’ but as I said earlier I never bind myself to any genre. But potentially I’m a good academic, fictional, non-fictional, article, poetry writer. I aspire to write a permanent column for a daily newspaper and become a columnist, hopefully soon. I try to keep my write-ups very believable, I don’t prefer over dramatizing things.
I prefer to develop a synopsis of the story first and then work on it. That makes the work easier and non messy.

Do you have a favorite place to write or a scheduled time to write every day?

No, I can write anywhere anytime. All I need is the mood and flow of writing.

Who are your favorite authors and what is the genre that you like reading most?

I don’t believe in having a favorite author rather I believe in having favorite books. Because I feel it’s not really important that a writer will deliver his best in all his books. Its’ the book which makes an author good or bad but a good book once created becomes a masterpiece. So I have favorite books but there is no one particular author whom I follow.
I enjoy reading all kinds of book but I should feel sad on reading the last page of the book, that why the book ended. For me that’s a good book which stays with me even after I finish reading it.


Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?

I see myself doing multitasking that too successfully after 10 years. Well practically I can’t even tell you where I will be tomorrow as life is very uncertain but I pray to have a life which I dream of today. I see myself as a successful company secretary with a leading MNC, a doting daughter like I’m now, a bestselling novelist and moreover a great human being.

Is there one subject you would never write about as an author? What is it?

There is nothing that I would never like to write but as of now I’m not comfortable in writing erotica’s. There are many who are writing it quite well but as of now I haven’t thought of doing so.


How much important do you think marketing is for the success of a book?

These days a good marketing is as important as good content, because as it is said “jo dikhta hain wo bikta hain”. And with the social media hype these days, if you don’t promote your book properly, then someone else may take away the spot light with their work. To make the readers, the ultimate consumers of your product aware of it’s launch, it’s existence it is of utmost importance. It includes both online and offline distribution. To educate the readers about the book not only pops up the sale but also makes a mark on their mind and ultimately develops it’s goodwill.


What is the message that you want to convey to the readers through your writing?

My aim of my writing is just not only to get published but through my writing I want to ignite a fire in the readers, I want to make them feel the fictional character created.  My pen is not only an art for me, for me its power, power of articulating my thoughts, power to reach lakhs of people, a way through which I can make them listen my thought process, the way I decipher things . I can’t be physically present everywhere to make people know what kind of thinking’s I’m surrounded by but I can easily do it through writing.
A very important message I will like to convey my readers is that, please do not go for the books which only carries names of well known writers. I agree that they have definitely created a niche for them but trust me budding writers carries much more than them, so please rather than going for high profile authors try to read people who really have an eye for literature. They may not have brand names but they have an insight, they have a fire. Kindly respect their talent too.
